This information below is from the ERIC Database help link at

Citing Materials Indexed in ERIC:
Cite ERIC materials as you would any other document, book, or journal article using your preferred or required style guide. We recommend including the ERIC accession
number in parentheses at the end of the citation (e.g., ERIC ED456789 or ERIC EJ567890).

This is a good example.
